Step into your local history.
The World Heritage Walk is a distinctive 13 mile* walk through beautiful scenery along the legendary tow paths and footpaths of Llangollen and Oswestry, an area steeped in local heritage.
Walking with fellow Nightingale House supporters, breathtaking scenery will greet you at every twist and turn, including the iconic Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Chirk Aqueduct, Trevor Basin and the Chirk Tunnel.
As well as raising much needed funds for your local Hospice, this is also a great opportunity to see in the summer with a walk through some of the region’s most picturesque countryside, an area awarded the status of World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
There is no registration fee to complete the World Heritage Walk but we encourage you to raise as much sponsorship as you possibly can. Both children and dogs are welcome and the route is suitable for pushchairs. However, all participants must be able to walk the full 13 miles.
You will start your journey by meeting the Nightingale House team at the Lion Quays in Oswestry at 09:45am where free parking will be provided. A free coach will transport you at approximately 10.30am to the Chainbridge Hotel in Llangollen where your walking adventure will begin at 11:30am.
*Please note: The walk will last approx 4/5 hours (you can take as long as you wish but the Nightingale House team will leave the hotel at 4pm). The walk will be approximately 13 miles.
